Bobby Lashley recently spoke with Bostonís 98.5 The Sports Hub about his return to WWE and Sundayís clash with Roman ReignsÖ

On Facing Roman Reigns on Sunday: ďThis is like everything to me right now,Ē Lashley said. ďTo have an opportunity to go against [Roman Reigns] and he is kinda the face of the company and he has been for some time. So the fact I get to wrestle him so soon I mean the preparation is like preparing for a fight. You have to be prepared. I know itís sports entertainment but we have to go out there we have to be physically ready and have to have everything in tune to have a great match and thatís what Iím looking for. Iím looking to have a great match with him. Not necessarily using him as a stepping stone to get to Brock, but I know thatís the guy I have to beat to get to Brock so I wanna have a great match and I want to show that Iím better.Ē

On His Time In Impact Wresting: ďWhen I went to Impact it was me proving myself on a daily basis to a lot of different people. I mean I had matches with Austin Aries, matches with Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, Drew McIntyre, I mean I wrestled everyone. During that time I wasnít just sitting back saying, Ďman I hope WWE picks me up, I hope they see me, I hope to get back.'Ē

On Working His Way back to WWE: ďIt was: Iím gonna prove myself across the board. Iím gonna go out there and fight. Iím gonna show everybody I have the balls to get in the cage and fight at some of the highest levels. I want to show them what I can do in professional wrestling that Iím not just a guy who picks people up and throws them down. Iím a guy who can go in there and have great matches with a lot of different people. So I was showing these things every day for the past ten years and on top of that keeping myself in peak physical shape. Iím not covering up. I donít need a t-shirt on to go wrestle. I donít need to cover myself up, because Iím in shape, I bust my ass. The results of what Iím doing are on TV you can just look at me. They just had to look, Ďwhat has Bobby been doing this whole time?í ó ĎLook at this.í So after the interest was there on both sides, it was basically a handshake after that, Ďletís make this happen.'Ē
